A moment of blog silence...

as I fly "home" to NY tonight to say my goodbyes to my grandmother, Ma. I had really hoped that she would hang on a little longer and be alive to see me truly smile again for the first time in years, but I know that she would still be proud of me and all I have accomplished since I left New York 5 1/2 years ago. I hope that her spirit can finally find peace after the shell of who she once was that Alzheimer's has left her for the past several years finally let's it go. I aspire every day to do her memory justice and hope that one day I can ever shine with even a fraction of the ray of light that she always has to everyone who loved her.
Me and Ma on my 28th birthday, November 2005. A few days before I left my NY life behind.


  1. Your Ma would definitely be proud of you. My condolences on your loss, Paul.
